Movies about the future are slowly becoming a reality one new technology at a time. Take, for example, laser guns. A staple of sci fi movies for years, they’ve never quite come to fruition â€” until now. A California company called TRW Systems is working on a laser beam rifle that’ll be able to burn things from 5 miles away. Yeah, 5 miles.
And when I say burn things, I’m not talking about pieces of paper. It could burn a fatal, quarter-inch-wide hole in a person’s body without making a sound from 5 miles out. Ohâ€” great. Somehow, these things always seemed a lot cooler in space. Now that its possible to get your guts burned out from across town I’m not sure how psyched I am about it.
